Default Funky loopy bow instructions

Who has the best instructions for funky loopy bows, either for free or pay? I want to buy some ASAP, but I am so bad at buying instructions...I know it sounds nuts, but I suck at it! I think it's my special talent I always end up buying poorly made ones.

Any suggestions?

If you want to give it a try before you purchase one, you can try these instructions
http://www.girlythingsbows.com/loopy_bows.html. Then just add pieces of ribbon, ric rac, tulle in between the loopy layers. Cut the extras in little pieces and stitch them in. You can also cut some of the loops to add more funky pieces as desired. Your ribbon can be different widths too.
Also, I have found that if you don't put a stitch through the center of each loop they are a little slippery and can pull out.

Thanks so much! I'd been making the plain ones using these instructions and also my own version of the funky loopy bow, but your advice really helps!!! Thanks !

I am going to tag a related question in here. How do you get the loops to stay separated? I have done a few of these and quit because the loops always tuck back under each other, no matter how hard I pull them out and to the sides.

doodles is AWESOME. her instructions are clear and detailed. I love them. I dont usually buy tuts for stuff I can figure out on my own (like other ladies here) but she put them on sale for 12.99 and they are VERY nice. Plus right now u can get both sets (alli and the french clip for that price).

Thanks! Jorja, thats how I feel. I have done just plain loopy bows on a french clip before, but I wanted to know how to add the textures plus the alligator clip version.

I am gonna try this one...thanks ladies!
